Elsewhere Online: Vimeo Video School Offers Free Tutorials to Help Improve Your Video Skills [How To]

Just to type of thing I like to share here on New Media Interchange — something to help everyone take advantage of New Media tools. Check it out!

If you’re looking to get started with your new video camera or just refine your skills, Vimeo’s just launched their Video School with some excellent tutorials from Vimeo users and pros alike.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for Vimeo. They offer a nice, simple video service with a cool community and some amazing content. Last night I received an email from Vimeo about their new effort to help you make some of that amazing content: Vimeo Video School.

More “A Christmas Carol” on

The audio CD of Patrick Stewart’s one man version of A Christmas Carol is absolutely amazing. We saw the show several times here in LA and met Patrick one evening. His version of “A Christmas Carol” was the driving factor in starting our own yearly reading of the story.

Planning for January Meeting – Interviews

As part of my end-of-year planning I am looking to put together a few New Media Interchange meetings in 2011.

The first idea that jumped to mind was…

Interviews: The Verbal and The Visual

I find that interviews are a great way for New Media producers to start producing their own shows. They allow you to spread word of your show via your interviewees connections instead of asking for mailing lists and such. It also makes it easier on producers as they don’t feel they have to have ALL the content for a given show. They can supplement their own content with the knowledge of their guests.

This meeting would include demonstrations on how to set up video shots, audio recording and the various ways you can format an interview ie interviewer on-screen/off-screen, using the questions in the video or allowing the interviewee to speak for themselves, etc.

Interested? Watch the New Media Interchange web site for scheduling information.

Tell your friends and colleagues. Direct them to the New Media Interchange Mailing list or the NMI Facebook Page
